What does the Eye with a Slash through it mean? I'm seeing it in the gradebook -- next to student's names as well as with assignments. TIA
It sounds like you are describing the new iconography for the Grade Post Policy function in the New Gradebook. You can find more information about it on the following page:
The section under "Visual Updates" will describe what each icon means. The red eye with a slash through it indicates that at least one student has the grade hidden to them in that column.
I hope this information is helpful!
Hello hillary houseman...
In addition to the information that David Vasquez has provided to you, this is also covered in the latest Canvas Release Notes and the Canvas New Feature Screencast (2019-07-13). I hope this additional information will be of help to you, Hillary.
Thank you Chris, yes it was helpful, to a point! Please see my comment below...there must be something I'm missing?
I read the release notes and watched the video and found them both difficult to understand. Slashed orange eyes suddenly appeared on my graded assignments even though the grading policy is set to 'Automatically post grades,' and I'm getting emails from students complaining that they can't see their grades. Any ideas?
I have the same problem.
OK. I found it. Click the three dots next top the assignment name in the grade book and select Post Grades.
Hi Michael, I found this too....but I'm wondering why, when my gradebook is set to "automatically post", I'm having to go into each assignment and manually push "post". Gah!
Have you gotten a better answer to this yet? I've been following this post because my gradebook was suddenly a MESS of things not posted. I have never muted/ hid grades. I even have ones that look posted everywhere in my end (solid eye in speed grader, no eyes in gradebook) that students can't see on mobile.
Yes Emmanuel, my observations exactly!
Thank you David, Chris, Emmanuel, and Michael.
I am slowly figuring it out...I guess what's bothering me is that now older assignments that are already completed are now showing the eye...I've made sure that my gradebook settings are set to automatic...but I'm having to go through old assignments and state "post grades" even if they were from months ago!
Also, to create a new quiz, where, say, I allow the students 2 attempts....they are stopped before the second attempt because I haven't "posted" the grades to the first attempt. And yet, when I create the quiz there is no option that I can find that allows me to prevent this from happening, aka, post automatically. They can't even see what they got wrong...(which is a setting I allow for on these pre-lab quizzes), until I "post" that assignment.
Is anyone else having this issue for assignments that appear published everywhere on the teacher in? Students today showed me assignments that look completely published on my end that stay they are still being graded on their end. These are assignments from weeks ago too.
I don't know who thought this up but how many of you need to post a grade on an assignment that is visible to some students and not to others? To me this was a confusing (red with cross, black with cross, and make yet another selection to get ride of the eye) and ill-advised change. Post them all at once for the assignment and that makes sure that you looked at everyone's submission before posting to other students... duh.
